Dr. Malik is a Pr. Scientist in the Division of Cancer Pharmacology at CSIR-Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Malik earned a Ph.D. from Punjab University, Punjab India and did his postdoctoral work with Prof. Dr. Max A. Wicha at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, USA. Dr. Malik joined the CSIR-IIIM, as a scientist in 2008 and has been promoted to the positions of Sen. Scientist in 2011 and Pr. Scientist in 2015
Major research interest of his group is to understand the fundamental regulatory mechanisms associated with Tumor metastasis and therapeutic resistance. Metastasis remains the major cause of cancer associated deaths and a huge clinical challenge with no therapeutic intervention. His current research goals are to understand the underlying mechanisms of cancer stem cells and metastasis in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) to identify the new targets, and identify small molecules against highly aggressive and drug resistant breast cancers.
